As I have learnt, the really small tumors are not always visible in imaging especially when the breast is dense. I had extensive DCIS and only in surgery was IDC found. DCIS is also not always easy to spot as it can be scattered. Mine was scattered in many places across a my right breast. What are the next steps in your treatment? Wish you all the best.
